New Delhi: Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty (36), the heaviest living women in the world and the second heaviest woman (500kgs) in history is now (170 kgs), thanks to the Indian doctor Dr Muffazal Lakdawala.
After this historic victory, Eman is all set to fly back to Abu Dhabi on Thursday. Before that, a 29-sheet transfer file will be handed over to Bhurjeel hospital in Abu Dhabi.
At a press conference held at Saifee Hospital on Wednesday, the medical team said it has "forgiven" Eman's sister Shaimaa Semil for making bitter allegations against them
Dr Lakdawala who has been treating upon Eman said: "Eman will surely miss me just as I will miss her,
Eman Ahmed was brought to India this February
This Egyptian national was brought to India in February this year and the target set for Lakdawala and his team of doctors was near impossible. But the medical team took the challenge little knowing what would be the final outcome. But the result within two months is amazing. Eman now weighs half her original weight. Says Dr Lakdawala: "Risk in this case was 99%, had only 1% chance of success. She has done miraculously well, didn't expect this." The weight reduction surgery is successful and the entire medical team is elated about this.
Sister Shaimaa Selim took the initiative
All this was possible because of the initiatives were taken by Eman's sister Shaimaa Selim. Selim is married and has children. Besides her home and professional life, she had to take care of Eman and she was worried once things started going out of control. The weight was increasing gradually and the bed-ridden Eman was having great problems. She then learned about Dr Muffazal Lakdawala, who is an expert in weight loss surgery. After seeing her reports and going through her history he was ready to take up the challenge, though unsure about the final outcome.
It was near impossible to transport her to India
Transporting Eman was a very big challenge and the walls of her room were razed to bring her out with the help of a crane. A special truck and cargo flight were arranged. All the expenses were met from the funds raised through charity. The family is very happy to see the results but they still have a long way to go. Doctors have taken one year to bring her to the minimum acceptable weight.
